Auction result well in line with expectations

In February this year Bonhams held the auction Post-War & Contemporary Art Online, which included the work Three Lines Up with Gimbals by George Rickey. The price achieved of USD 40,695.00 (€ 38,384.27) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 30,000.00 – 50,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by George Rickey achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work One Fixed Four Jointed Lines in May 2019 with an auction result of USD 519,000.00 (€ 465,512.60).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Februar diesen Jahres führte Bonhams die Auktion Post-War & Contemporary Art Online durch, in der auch die Arbeit Three Lines Up with Gimbals von George Rickey zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 40.695,00 (€ 38.384,27) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 30.000,00 – 50.000,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von George Rickey erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit One Fixed Four Jointed Lines im Mai 2019 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 519.000,00 (€ 465.512,60).
